It was not that long ago that there was only one way to learn how to play the game of golf. You would grab your clubs and head down to the local golf course, for a lesson with the pro. No one looked forward to these lessons - they were the grown-up equivalent of a piano lesson. Drills and constant negative feedback - a horrible way to spend an afternoon.
Online golf lessons are a remarkable alternative to the age-old "lesson from the pro". Undoubtedly, the pro knows what he is doing, but a lot of golfers can't take the negativity, the swing rebuilding, and most of us simply can't afford the price of such fun.
You can now, however, turn on your computer and start taking online golf lessons in just minutes. If you know what your "problem" is, you can find lessons that address it specifically. If you don't have a problem and just want to hit longer or straighter, then you can find lessons for that as well.
Besides the difference in price, there are several other very important advantages to these kinds of lessons. Imagine that you go see a golf pro and you spend an hour, having him watch you swing. He says a few things and you practice them, and you go home. What happens the next day when you are at the range? Do you remember what he said? No.
Online golf lessons offer you the ability to review the lessons, time and again, picking up new information each and every time. Watch a video, read a lesson, go try it - and if you aren't swinging better, go see if you missed something. Watch it again and again until you "get it". Not all swing problems can be solved in this manner, but you may find that yours is easy to fix in no time at all.
